Gasping for Air – Promote Yourself

Time Will Tell – Promote Yourself

JUNKYARD – Promote Yourself

scrap

Lying amongst mud and decay

Spent heaps discarded,

Side by side the mean and misused

Elegant and cherished share the same epitaph,

Pampered and treasured rot alike

In the end measure equal,

Parts torn and corrupted,

Scavengers pick clean

That others survive.

Walt Trizna

Published by New Worlds Unlimited in 1976.  The title of the anthology was, and still is, Reflections of the Inward Silence.

“Vex Me”: – promote Yourself

FAREWELL TO SUMMER

The Mandarin is covered

in little orange globes

and in among the greenery

a tamarillo glows

 

the loquat is still budding

feijoas lie in piles

all around the orchard

and down the grassy aisles

 

there are red and yellow guavas

to give the birds a treat

and some fruit I do not recognise

that isn’t nice to eat

 

there are beans on the shelf

and pumpkins in the shed

as winter comes to Northland

and summer days have fled
